This is a one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship. The mission of the pain medicine fellowship at Albany Medical Center is to provide comprehensive training in acute, chronic, and interventional pain management. The pain medicine fellow will acquire the medical knowledge and technical skills necessary to independently practice pain medicine in a safe and effective manner through a multidisciplinary education process. These goals are realized through directed study, independent learning, clinical service rotations, and subspecialty experiences guided by a faculty devoted to graduate medical education. It is expected that graduates of this training program will attain certification by the American Board of Pain Medicine. We offer: a diverse clinical exposure at a 766-bed hospital; the most up-to-date monitoring and treatment paradigms for pain patients; congenial environment among faculty, fellows, and residents in all disciplines; strong commitment to teaching; and interest and commitment to research.
